  • Jake Peavy goes seven innings in victory
    Jake Peavy improved to 4-6 after allowing two runs in seven innings Friday against the Phillies.

    Advice: Since falling to 1-5 with an 8.21 ERA on May 20, Peavy is 3-1 with a 1.91 ERA in his last six starts. It's not enough to make him a quality pickup in mixed leagues again, but the Giants will certainly take it. Yesterday, 11:07 pm
  • Zach Eflin sharp versus Giants
    Zach Eflin pitched six innings and allowed just an unearned run Friday in a no-decision against the Giants.

    Advice: Eflin left with a 2-1 lead, but it vanished almost immediately in the seventh. Still, this was a second straight nice outing for him after he gave up eight earned runs in 2 2/3 innings in his major league debut 10 days ago. He remains a weak bet outside of deep NL-only leagues, but he won't embarrass himself. Yesterday, 11:05 pm
  • Ryan Madson notches 14th save
    After setting up for Sean Doolittle on Thursday, Ryan Madson picked up his 14th save with a scoreless ninth against the Angels on Friday.

    Advice: Madson also pitched a scoreless inning Thursday before Doolittle gave up two runs in nearly blowing the lead. Tonight's save was just Madson's second of June, but that's less because of usage and more because the A's are struggling. He remains the primary closer. Yesterday, 10:58 pm
  • Yasmany Tomas homers twice in win
    Yasmany Tomas drove in four runs with a pair of homers to held the Diamondbacks beat the Rockies 10-9 on Friday.

    Advice: The Diamondbacks won despite being just the second team in history to use nine pitchers in a nine-inning game that took place prior to the Sept. 1 roster expansion. Tomas finally came up big with multiple men on base; he had never homered and rarely gotten a hit of any kind with two or three bases occupied. The first homer tonight was a three-run shot, and he tied up the game in the ninth with a solo blast. The Diamondbacks went on to take their 10-9 lead when Michael Bourn drove in Jean Segura. Yesterday, 10:45 pm
  • Archie Bradley allows one run in five
    Archie Bradley yielded one run in five innings Friday in a no-decision against the Rockies.

    Advice: Bradley walked four and threw 94 pitches, so he didn't have any real chance of going deeper. The Diamondbacks went on to use eight relievers to get through the next four innings, yet they won 10-9 anyway. Bradley has a 3.53 ERA in six starts since rejoining the Diamondbacks a month ago, but since he still doesn't have the walks under control, he's not an every-week option in mixed leagues. Yesterday, 10:40 pm
  • Jake Lamb goes 3-for-4, drives in three
    Jake Lamb had three hits, three RBI and three errors Friday against the Rockies.

    Advice: At least the bat mostly made up for the glove. Lamb tripled and doubled in the contest. He's sitting against a lot of left-handers, but he's currently sporting a .943 OPS, making him one of the NL's top hitters to date. Yesterday, 10:35 pm
  • Rasmus goes 4-for-5 with a home run on Friday
    Colby Rasmus filled the box score by going 4-for-5 with a home run, two RBI and three runs scored on Friday.

    Advice: Rasmus played like an MVP for the first three weeks of the season but had been awful ever since. Tonight he cheered his owners up immensely. Rasmus has been very streaky throughout his career, so perhaps this game is the start of something good. He now has a .245 batting average with ten home runs, 26 runs, 39 RBI and four steals. Yesterday, 10:26 pm
  • Trevor Rosenthal gives up three-run homer
    Trevor Rosenthal gave up a three-run homer without retiring a batter to take a blown save and a loss Friday against the Mariners.

    Advice: It's still just Rosenthal's third blown save, but his job is very much in jeopardy again. After inheriting a 3-1 lead tonight, he gave up a double, a walk and a homer to open the ninth. It's the walks, not so much the hits, that have been his problem this season, but tonight's wasn't bad; Dae-Ho Lee just put together a strong at-bat against him. Still, the Cardinals seemed to be pretty much out of patience with him, and this could be the straw that broke their backs. If so, Kevin Siegrist could be the favorite for saves, with Seung-Hwan Oh continuing to work in the eighth. Yesterday, 10:19 pm
  • Alcides Escobar went 2-for-4 and hit his first home run of the season on Friday night.

    Advice: Escobar has been a lost cause at the plate this year, batting .252/.276/.311 with 25 runs and 19 RBI. His one strength is his 10 stolen bases. He has averaged four home runs per year in his career, so tonight's bomb was a rarity. Yesterday, 10:19 pm
  • Sanchez is quality vs White Sox on Friday
    Aaron Sanchez held the White Sox to two runs in six innings to earn a quality start in a no-decision on Friday.

    Advice: He allowed eight hits and one walk while striking out four. Sanchez now has a 3.33 ERA with 93 strikeouts and 32 walks in 97 1/3 innings. Still very young (he turns 24 next week), the right-hander has a career 2.87 ERA in 222 2/3 innings for a team that plays in a ballpark that is unfriendly to pitchers. Compared to last year, Sanchez has made big improvements to both his walk and strikeout rates. A large part of his success comes from keeping the ball on the ground to avoid home runs. Yesterday, 10:05 pm
  • Melky homers on three-hit night
    Melky Cabrera went 3-for-4 and hit his eighth home run of the season on Friday in a win over the Blue Jays.

    Advice: Cabrera is not an exciting player to own but has provided solid fantasy value throughout his career. He is now batting .296 with 35 runs and 38 RBI to go along with the eight home runs. His .820 OPS is his best since 2012 with the Giants -- the year he got busted for PEDs. Yesterday, 9:43 pm
  • Price gets pounded for six runs on Friday
    David Price was hammered by the Rangers for six earned runs on 12 base hits in only 2 1/3 innings on Friday and was lucky to escape with a no-decision when the Red Sox came back late to win the game.

    Advice: Price's ERA took a beating and is now back up to 4.68 in 102 innings. Considering he gave up so many hits in such a short time Price could have given up even more runs, but only two of the twelve hits went for extra bases and he didn't add to his misery by walking anyone. Price was terrible early in the season but had been pitching very effectively for a long time. This was his first clunker since a May 7th game against the Yankees. He should be one of the better pitchers in the league moving forward. Yesterday, 9:36 pm
  • Mets expected to sign Reyes as soon as Sat.
    Anthony DiComo of hears from multiple major league sources that the Mets expect to sign Jose Reyes as soon as Saturday afternoon.

    Advice: Reyes was placed on release waivers on Thursday after the Rockies failed to find a trade for him and he'll officially become a free agent at 1 p.m. ET on Saturday. The Mets were originally seen as an unlikely landing spot, but a reunion has quickly picked up steam over the past few days. The Mets would only be responsible for a prorated portion of the major league minimum, so they are willing to take a chance on him even though he isn't the player he once was and recently served a suspension for a domestic violence incident with his wife. The expectation is that Reyes would be sent to the minors to get some at-bats while also working at third base. He would likely function in a super-utility role in his return to the Mets. Yesterday, 9:32 pm

  • Martinez gives up four runs in six innings
    Nick Martinez was charged with four runs in six innings and took a no-decision versus the Red Sox on Friday.

    Advice: Martinez gave up six hits, two of which landed on the far side of the outfield wall. Making his second start of the year, he struck out only two batters while walking three. He has a 5.54 ERA and is striking out only 3.46 batters per nine innings. Martinez is nothing more than a replacement-level pitcher who is only in the majors because the Rangers' rotation has been devastated by injury. He is best avoided in fantasy unless you play in a very deep AL-only league. Yesterday, 9:26 pm
  • Betts slugs last-ditch homer as Sox win
    Mookie Betts hit a game-tying, two-run home run with two outs in the ninth inning to help the Red Sox rally to an 8-7 victory over the Rangers on Friday.

    Advice: Trailing by two and down to their last out, Betts smacked a Matt Bush pitch over the center-field wall to tie the game. Later in the inning Dustin Pedroia scored on a wild pitch for the go-ahead run. Betts finished 2-for-5 on the night. He's batting .292 with 16 homers and 12 steals and leads the majors with 65 runs scored. Yesterday, 9:20 pm
  • Jake Lamb launches two-run dinger in victory
    Jake Lamb went 2-for-5 with a two-run home run and two runs scored in Thursday's win over the Rockies.

    Advice: Oddly, while the Diamondbacks racked up 15 hits on the evening, they had just two of the extra-base species. Both came in the third inning, with Socrates Brito and Lamb each socking two-run home runs. For his part, Lamb has now homered four times in his last 10 games. He's hit to a strong .279/.360/.563 triple-slash with 17 doubles, 15 homers and 47 RBI over 240 at-bats. A trip to the All-Star Game is by no means a guarantee, but his numbers make him worthy of consideration at the very least. Thursday, 9:45 pm
  • Report: Mets targeting Jose Reyes at 3B
    If the Mets sign Jose Reyes, Newsday's Marc Carig believes the team will immediately send him to the minor leagues to work at third base.

    Advice: A Mets/Reyes union was floated out as a possibility earlier this week and now it looks like it might actually happen. Carig said he'd be "surprised at this point if Reyes ends up somewhere else." The Royals have also been linked to Reyes but the Mets have a more pressing need at third base, where David Wright (neck surgery) remains out indefinitely. Reyes has never played third base in a major league game but if he can make the transition, he'd be a big upgrade over light-hitting Wilmer Flores. Thursday, 4:28 pm

  • Rox request release waivers on Jose Reyes
    According to the Rockies' public relations department, the club has requested release waivers on Jose Reyes.

    Advice: Reyes should officially become a free agent on Saturday. Colorado made an effort to trade the veteran shortstop, but no team had interest in taking on what's left of his contract (around $40 million) and he's also coming off a 51-game domestic violence suspension. That said, Reyes should have some suitors once he officially clears waivers. There's thought to be a level of interest from the Royals and Mets. Thursday, 11:19 am

  • Rockies unlikely to find trade for Jose Reyes
    The New York Post's Ken Davidoff relays that "most industry executives surveyed believe Colorado will not find a willing trade partner for [Jose Reyes]."

    Advice: The Rockies have until Saturday to trade him. If not, they will likely release him, for a multitude of reasons. Even setting aside the uncomfortable nature of the 51-game suspension Reyes just finished serving for a November domestic violence incident, he just turned 33 years old and is owed $38 million (or thereabouts) through the end of the 2017 season. Not to mention that his current replacement at shortstop, Trevor Story, is slashing .264/.324/.549 with 18 homers and 46 RBI over 273 at-bats. FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reported on Monday that the Mets are at least mulling a possible reunion. There might be interest from the Royals too. Wednesday, 8:53 pm

  • Melky Cabrera homers, knocks in four
    Melky Cabrera went 4-for-5 with a homer, a double and four RBI as the White Sox beat the Red Sox 8-6 on Wednesday.

    Advice: Cabrera has been the White Sox's most consistent hitter this year, and his .795 OPS leads the team. His mixed-league value remains quite limited, since he doesn't do anything especially well and he's a zero in steals, but he probably is worth the roster spot while he's batting cleanup, as he has been of late. Wednesday, 8:22 pm
  • Rosenthal strikes out two to earn 14th save
    Trevor Rosenthal allowed a hit and a walk but struck out two and managed to close out the Cubs to earn his 14th save Tuesday.

    Advice: It can never be easy with Rosenthal, and that was true Tuesday as well, as he put the tying run on second base with two outs and Matt Szczur at the plate. Szczur bounced out to short to end the threat, but it was another high-wire act from the 26-year-old closer, who has a 4.50 ERA and 1.92 WHIP on the year. Two successful saves in the past two nights should give him some added job security, but Cards manager Mike Matheny would surely like to see some more convincing outings in the near future. Tuesday, 9:04 pm
  • Yasmany Tomas goes deep to beat Blue Jays
    Yasmany Tomas clubbed a two-run homer in the fourth inning on Tuesday, propelling the Diamondbacks to a 4-2 victory over the Blue Jays.

    Advice: Tomas turned around a fastball from Marco Estrada, sending it deep into the seats in left field, increasing the Diamondbacks' advantage to 3-0 in the fourth inning. With his 1-for-4 effort on Tuesday, Tomas is now hitting .257/.309/.454 with 10 long balls and 25 RBI on the season. Tuesday, 8:15 pm
  • Peavy defrauded more than $15 million
    Jake Peavy was defrauded more than $15 million by a financial adviser, according to a filing Tuesday by the Securities and Exchange Commission.

    Advice: Retired pitcher Roy Oswalt and NFL quarterback Mark Sanchez were also involved in this fraudulent scheme, per the filing in U.S. District Court. The SEC is seeking to freeze the assets of this adviser, a man named Ash Narayan, and recoup more than $33 million that he took from the three pro athletes. Peavy told the San Francisco Chronicle that he learned about the fraud on the first day of spring training. "I think I did the best I could to stay focused," he said. "Maybe at times I haven't done my best, but I think the last month is indicative of what I can do to help this team. I’m doing what I can to push the needle forward." Tuesday, 4:33 pm
  • Trevor Rosenthal gets a shaky save
    Trevor Rosenthal pitched around two hits and a hit batter to work a scoreless ninth and record his 13th save Monday against the Cubs.

    Advice: Manager Mike Matheny got Kevin Siegrist up after Rosenthal gave up a double to Albert Almora (on a ball that might have been caught by a center fielder more experienced than Kolten Wong) and hit Chris Coghlan. It was then that Rosenthal received probably his biggest gift of the season; he missed badly with a fastball to Ben Zobrist, but it hit the ump after Yadier Molina failed to snare it and Molina was able to grab it and throw out Almora on his way to third. Even better, Coghlan remained at first on the play and, thus, didn't score on Zobrist's subsequent single. Rosenthal was kept in even though the left-handed-hitting Jason Heyward followed, and he got Heyward to pop out to end it. It was probably a job-saving out for him. Monday, 8:28 pm
  • Mets 'debating internally' about Jose Reyes
    FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal hears from major-league sources that the Mets are "debating internally" whether signing Jose Reyes would be worth the public-relations fallout.

    Advice: Reyes was designated for assignment by the Rockies last week on the heels of serving a 51-game suspension for a domestic violence incident with his wife. The 33-year-old could be signed at the major league minimum assuming he becomes a free agent, but the question is whether it would be worth the distraction to bring him aboard when he's clearly not the player he once was. Still, the Mets haven't ruled out the possibility, at least not yet. Rosenthal speculates that he could be a fit at either second or third base. Reyes could become a free agent as soon as this weekend. Monday, 4:26 pm

  • Jake Lamb slugs 14th home run of the year
    Jake Lamb slugged his 14th home run of the season Monday in the Diamondbacks' defeat of the Phillies.

    Advice: It was a two-run shot in the top of the first inning off Phillies starter Jeremy Hellickson. Lamb had a massive four-game series in Philadelphia, going 9-for-17 with two homers and five RBI. He has a stellar .932 OPS and 45 RBI in 68 total games this year. Monday, 1:03 pm
  • Matheny hints Rosenthal is still the closer
    Cardinals manager Mike Matheny indicated Sunday that Trevor Rosenthal is still the team's closer.

    Advice: "We need him. We need him right," said Matheny. "However we’ve got to do that we will. But right now (we’re) not making any major statement about what our plans are." Rosenthal has been inconsistent all season, and it's gotten especially bad over the last week. For the year, he holds a 4.91 ERA, 1.91 WHIP, and 33/19 K/BB ratio in 22 innings. Seung Hwan Oh and Kevin Siegrist are both worth stashing in deeper leagues. Monday, 7:38 am
  • Mookie Betts cracks go-ahead solo homer
    Mookie Betts went 3-for-5 with a go-ahead solo home run in Sunday's 2-1 win over the Mariners.

    Advice: Betts played hero in this one with his seventh-inning solo home run off Edwin Diaz. The game had been deadlocked at 1-1 prior to his bomb. The 23-year-old has been nothing short of phenomenal this season – particularly given his age – and owns a shiny .295/.342/.527 triple-slash to pair with 15 homers, 50 RBI and 11 steals across 298 at-bats. He stole 21 bases last season, a mark that he should have a good chance of surpassing if he can stay healthy. Sunday, 7:03 pm
  • Price fires eight innings of one-run ball
    David Price pitched admirably in Sunday's 2-1 win over the Mariners, allowing one run on eight hits over eight innings.

    Advice: Price struck out seven without walking a batter on the afternoon. Franklin Gutierrez rocked a solo homer off him in the fourth inning, but he otherwise kept the scoreboard clean. After scuffling through April and early May, the ace southpaw has been fantastic. He has made it through eight innings in each of his last three starts and has allowed two or fewer runs in six of his last eight outings. Price will carry a 4.24 ERA, 1.12 WHIP and 109/24 K/BB ratio (99 2/3 innings) into a road date with the Rangers next time he takes the mound. Sunday, 6:59 pm
  • Melk Man delivers with solo homer vs Indians
    Melky Cabrera went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Sunday's loss to the Indians.

    Advice: Cabrera rolled his wrist on a fielding play Saturday, but showed no immediate ill effects when he burned Carlos Carrasco for a solo home run in the fourth inning on Sunday. For the season, the veteran outfielder is slashing .286/.344/.437 with 15 doubles, six homers and 32 RBI over 245 at-bats. Sunday, 3:10 pm
  • Jake Peavy plays against trend, pitches well
    Jake Peavy posted one of his better starts of the season in Sunday's no-decision against the Rays, yielding one run on four hits over six innings.

    Advice: Peavy struck out eight and walked just one on the afternoon. The nice performance was a surprise, to say the least. Even with this strong outing in the books, the veteran right-hander still holds an undesirable 5.47 ERA and 1.44 WHIP. He will try to repeat Sunday's result in a home showdown with the Phillies next time he toes the rubber. Sunday, 1:45 pm
  • Jake Lamb stays hot with double and triple
    Jake Lamb went 2-for-5 with two RBI in the Diamondbacks' 5-1 defeat of the Phillies on Sunday.

    Advice: Lamb drove in Paul Goldschmidt with an RBI double in the top of the sixth inning and then plated Goldy again with an RBI triple in the bottom of the ninth. He also went 2-for-4 with a home run on Saturday and 3-for-4 on Friday. The third baseman is enjoying a breakout season at age 25, now with a .917 OPS and 43 RBI in 67 games. Sunday, 1:42 pm
  • Eflin allows two runs in loss to D'Backs
    Zach Eflin allowed two earned runs over 5 2/3 innings Sunday in a loss to the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: Eflin looked much sharper than he did in his MLB debut Tuesday against the Blue Jays, but he got only one run of support on Sunday and fell to 0-2 in two major league starts. The young right-hander struck out three Arizona hitters while yielding only one walk and four total hits. He'll try to build off those results on his next turn against the Giants at AT&T Park. Sunday, 1:38 pm
  • Bradley limits Phillies to one unearned run
    Archie Bradley limited the Phillies to one (unearned) run over six innings Sunday for his third win.

    Advice: It was a big bounceback outing for the 23-year-old right-hander, who had struggled on his last two turns. Bradley struck out five Phillies and scattered two walks and three hits over his six steady frames. The one run against him came on a double play groundball by Tommy Joseph in the bottom of the sixth inning. Bradley now stands 3-3 with a 4.83 ERA, 1.32 WHIP, and 44/20 K/BB ratio in 41 innings (seven starts) this season. He has matchup-to-matchup appeal in mixed fantasy leagues. Sunday, 1:29 pm
  • Rosenthal struggles again in loss to Rangers
    Trevor Rosenthal was ineffective once again Saturday, allowing two runs without recording an out in a loss to the Rangers.

    Advice: Rosenthal was called on to preserve a one-run lead in the ninth inning. Instead, he allowed two quick singles before throwing a wild pitch and then hitting Robinson Chirinos to load the bases. His replacement, Kevin Siegrist, allowed two of the inherited runs to score, leaving Rosenthal with his second loss and inflating his ERA to 4.91 with a 1.91 WHIP. Cardinals manager Mike Matheny will have to think about making a change soon, at which point Seung-hwan Oh would likely assume ninth-inning duties. Intrepid owners should stash Oh just in case. Saturday, 8:38 pm
  • Martinez allows three runs in spot start
    Nick Martinez allowed three runs on six hits over 4 1/3 innings in a start against the Cardinals on Saturday.

    Advice: It's unclear whether the start will be his last for a while or whether the Rangers will keep him in the rotation for the foreseeable future for lack of better options. He has a 5.14 ERA in seven innings with the big club and owned a 4.50 ERA in 11 starts at Triple-A, so either way, Martinez isn't a name worth knowing for fantasy owners. Saturday, 8:33 pm
  • Melky Cabrera rolled right wrist vs. Indians
    Melky Cabrera rolled his wrist on Saturday night.

    Advice: Cabrera suffered the injury while trying to field a Tyler Naquin single in the first inning. He's being called day-to-day for now, but wrists can be tricky. Jason Coats replaced Cabrera in the field on Saturday. Saturday, 6:25 pm
  • Melky Cabrera removed with apparent injury
    Melky Cabrera left Saturday's game against the Indians with an apparent hand injury.

    Advice: Cabrera looked to hurt his glove hand while trying to make a play on a single by Tyler Naquin in the first inning. He exited in the fourth, replaced by Jason Coats. There should be more information after the game. Saturday, 4:43 pm
  • Colby Rasmus not in Astros lineup on Saturday
    Colby Rasmus is not in the Astros starting lineup on Saturday.

    Advice: He'll take a seat in favor of Jake Marisnick with southpaw Cody Reed on the hill for the Reds. Rasmus has fallen off a cliff since his hot start, slashing a cringe-inducing .199/.265/.287 with three homers and a 57/16 K/BB ratio in 43 games since April 24. Saturday, 9:12 am
  • Ryan Madson blows third save
    Ryan Madson was credited with a blown save and a win Friday as the A's edged the Angels 3-2.

    Advice: Madson got the final out of the eighth in a 2-1 game, but he gave up a run in the ninth to take his third blown save of the year. He went on to pick up a win after Marcus Semien walked with two outs in the bottom of the ninth and Jake Smolinski and Billy Burns followed with singles, ending the game. Had Madson closed it out in the top of the ninth, it would have been his first save since May 30. Unfortunately for him, the A's haven't been generating many late leads recently. Friday, 11:04 pm
  • Tomas smacks two solo homers vs. Phils
    Yasmany Tomas connected for a pair of solo homers Friday against the Phillies.

    Advice: The second homer reached the second deck. It was his second career multi-homer game. He also hit two homers against the Padres back on April 17. Tomas is now up to nine homers through 58 games this season, which matches his total from 118 games last season. Still, he has slowed down significantly since his hot start to the season and regular playing time is no longer a sure thing. Friday, 8:34 pm
  • Sanchez gives up two runs in victory
    Aaron Sanchez yielded two runs in six innings Friday in a victory over the Orioles.

    Advice: Sanchez was shaky early before settling down with the benefit of a huge lead. He struck out six and walked a pair in the victory and now sits at 7-1 with a 3.35 ERA on the year. A move to the bullpen looms later this summer, but he’ll remain valuable in fantasy leagues until that time comes. Friday, 7:18 pm
  • Jake Peavy (neck) pushed back to Sunday
    Jake Peavy's (neck) next scheduled start has been pushed back from Saturday to Sunday.

    Advice: Peavy is dealing with some minor neck stiffness, so the Giants decided to take advantage of the schedule and give him an extra day of rest. Albert Suarez will face the Rays on Saturday. Friday, 2:57 pm
  • Nick Martinez will start on Saturday
    Nick Martinez will start on Saturday against the Cardinals.

    Advice: He's getting the call over Cesar Ramos, who will head back to the Rangers' bullpen. Martinez carries a 4.50 ERA in 11 starts for Round Rock this year and can be ignored for fantasy purposes. Friday, 1:09 pm
  • Heyman: Royals aren't interested in Jose Reyes
    MLB Network's Jon Heyman says the Royals aren't targeting Jose Reyes.

    Advice: ESPN's Alex Cora reported earlier today that Kansas City was interested in using Reyes at second base. According to Heyman, the Royals are all set with Whit Merrifield and Christian Colon and won't be pursuing Reyes. The 33-year-old was let go Wednesday after hitting .303 during a nine-game rehab stint with Triple-A Albuquerque. Reyes just finished a 51-game suspension for alleged domestic violence.

  • Report: Royals considering Jose Reyes at 2B
    According to Alex Cora of ESPN, the Royals are eyeing Jose Reyes to play second base.

    Advice: Omar Infante was designated for assignment this week and the Royals are using Whit Merrifield and Christian Colon at second base. It does make some sense. Reyes was cut from the Rockies' 40-man roster on Wednesday and is expected to pass through waivers unclaimed, at which point he will become a free agent. The 33-year-old hit .303/.425/.485 over 40 plate appearances on his nine-game minor league rehab assignment at Triple-A Albuquerque. He might have something left to offer the defending World Series champs, who are currently tied for first in the AL Central. Thursday, 10:52 am

  • Gibbons insists Sanchez will move to pen
    Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said that the team still plans on shifting Aaron Sanchez to the bullpen later this season.

    Advice: Sanchez, 23, has made 13 starts and holds a 3.38 ERA, 1.12 WHIP and 83/29 K/BB ratio. He has thrown 85 1/3 innings thus far. That is already close to touching his career-high in innings at the major league level. Working as a combo starter-reliever last season, he accumulated 92 1/3 frames worth of action. Gibbons did not offer a specific date for Sanchez's shift to the bullpen, though, and he will start until the team indicates otherwise. At the micro level, his next outing will come on the road against the Orioles. Once he does move over to the pen, Gibbons said that Drew Hutchison would take his spot in the rotation. Wednesday, 1:44 pm
  • Rockies DFA veteran shortstop Jose Reyes
    Rockies designated SS Jose Reyes for assignment.

    Advice: Reyes finished up his two-week rehab assignment on Wednesday and the Rockies either had to add him to their 25-man roster or give him the heave-ho. He has served out his domestic violence suspension, but Colorado is obviously content with Trevor Story at shortstop. Reyes, 33, is still owed more than $44 million. He'll likely pass through waivers unclaimed and become a free agent. Wednesday, 10:06 am

  • Jake Lamb out of Arizona lineup on Wed.
    Jake Lamb is out of the Diamondbacks' starting lineup on Wednesday afternoon.

    Advice: Brandon Drury will start at third base and bat second versus Dodgers left-hander Clayton Kershaw. Lamb, a left-handed hitter, will be available off the bench. Wednesday, 9:42 am
  • Bradley strikes out nine in uneven outing
    Archie Bradley was up and down in Tuesday's loss to the Dodgers, striking out nine while also allowing three home runs and five total runs over 5 2/3 innings.

    Advice: Three of the four hits Bradley allowed left the ballpark. Joc Pederson burned him twice, cracking solo home runs in the fifth and sixth innings. Justin Turner also clocked a solo shot in that sixth before Bradley was relieved of duty.
